    Peach and I will be transiting SFO & LAX en route to Hawaii next month. With our departure time from ABQ (6:00 a.m.... who booked this damn thing,) we'll need to grab a meal in SFO (between 8:00 a.m. and noon) in Terminal 3. Our next stop (between 2:00 and 4:00) will be LAX in Terminal 6 or 7, and we'll need to grab something light before the flight to LIH where we'll catch something on landing. (Yeah, it is going to be a LLLLOOOONNNNGGG day!)

    Any recommendations for decent eats in SFO T3 or LAX T6/T7? (And to pre-answer the question... no, I don't have a UA Club membership where we could subsist for a while.)

    I haven't eaten in SFO T3 for breakfast, so I might have to look at maps to figure it out.

    LAX T6/7 isn't the food wasteland it used to be (thankfully). T8 (Gates 80-86) is best avoided except for perhaps Engine Co 28. You'll probably be in T7 though - which is The Counter for a burger, Wolfgang Puck Express, or B Grill. Worst case, Panda Express (at least you know what you're facing there.)

    If you can get to T6 I'd recommend it. Habit Burger Grill is excellent, Wahoo's Fish Tacos are decent, and there are a couple of other restaurants that merited a look the last time I was there. The problem is that T7 to T6 can take a few minutes of walking, and T8 to T6 is ten minutes to walk.

    I have a couple of places in mind for LIH depending on where you'll be, but most of them may not be open when you land. The island gets quiet after dark.

    Actually a pretty neat place and worth a weekend visit. At first I was worried given the military presence in Kaliningrad but so far so good.

    It's part Russian, part Russians pretending to be German.


    The weather is exponentially better than what is going on in MN this weekend.

    Thank you. Close is definitely a priority as I don't want Peach to do any more walking than necessary on travel day (she's going to do enough of that in Kauai and Molokai for the trip.)

    Well the employment thing may be tenuous today, but I did have two RBIs and scored a run in softball today. That's a good thing. :)

    Back in Moscow. Before departure , I talked with a British pilot a bit before boarding. Turns out he was my flights FO, and long story short, I got to jump seat a bit before landing.

    Good Monday morning. A nice stormy day. I just need the flood waters to recede and all the car crashes to clear so I can actually drive some place.

    @FortFun The Irish are stepping up their game. Walked through the local Total Wine on my way to Bulleit Rye Whiskey and noticed a display for Tullamore Dew Caribbean Rum Cask Finish @ less than $27, so I figured, "How can I lose?". I didn't. Very nice, no doubt inspired by the Scots successful use of various other flavored barrels for finishing their products, but also very successful in this one. ^

    And Kauai has flash flooding and 2+ feet of rain over the weekend... My trip in 3-weeks may have just gotten complicated!

    From a released statement.
    "The Philadelphia International Airport tweeted passengers "should expect delays" following the incident."
    Ya think???
